I played a fan based english (bablefish translation) port to a "original" green game.
basically a whole cartridge port instead of just an emulation.
It had several bugs within translation issues but the gameplay was all there and it was playable.
I didn't see much differences to Red except minor artwork differences.

Yes, a few times, actually. While I didn't understand any of it, it's not the first Pokemon game that I beat in Japanese.

Nope, never. ;( It is something I want to try, though! I was considering getting a copy to collect too.

I'd love to play the real thing, but sounds like some serious effort to translate in the ROM hack above, I will try it and see the different sprites :-)

I played a ROM of it, if that counts. As for the actual cartridge, no, I have never owned/played one. Although I would love to own it.

What's so funny about it? Does it have a weird translation like Vietnamese Crystal? LOL

He could be talking about the bootleg translated green, like the one below.

I haven't played it before, unfortunately. I've never understood Japanese in the first place, so there was honestly no point in me playing it. I always wanted to, though, because I've heard a lot of stories about it. The story about Lavender Town music has gotta be the most interesting of them all. Since they have an English patch now, I may finally be able to give this game a try~
for all distractions.

I briefly played a bootleg English translated Green when at a flea market (a market place where people can sell some used/cheap stuff). The lady priced it at $30. This was about in 2002 or so, and I wasn't impressed with it since I already had Red/Blue.

UNFORTUNATELY, I instead bought the bootleg Diamond / Telefang. Oh jeez, the Engrish. I was deceived into thinking it was a rare Pokemon game that I didn't have yet. It's an alright game by itself, but it was not worth $30. :P
Even if it's a short life, burn hot and bright and overtake the moment. That's my way of life.

Nope but I really want to. It just seems so mysterious since it was the first Pokemon game along with the Jpn version of Red. I heard it's a lot like R/B but I would still like to try playing it some day.

I haven't but I would actually like to one day. If I did though, I would want to play the non-translated one to see how well I do without dialogue.

I've played it simply out of curiosity. Plus I wanted to hear Lavender Town's Japanese music in-game.

I also own Pokemon Green cartridge (as wel as Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow JAP). I collect alot of Pokemon stuff and Retro games and consoles, I wanted this for ages! :D

I also like the fact that in the good old days you could interact your trusted Pokes from Red/Blue/Yellow and battle with them in Pokemon Stadium :D When I was a kid that was a nice drive to play again (and yes I still do)

I was playing this game until my Pokemon X copy was out actually

I never played the original Green Version so I have no idea what pokemon were on what routes. I might consider playing it sometime in the future.
